Cat. Number If known, from:
(Mac OS Big Sur) HP Deskjet 2654 (1200 DPI, 24-bit Colour) through VueScan 9; Edited with GIMP; Lossless compression with ImageOptim
Charles Heath; Frederick Heath (Perkins, Bacon & Co)
Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Plate 131, position ND, Penny Red. One large margin to the top, but the face is complete and intact with all four corner letters visible. Decent colour and readable plate number. Major perforation faults. Slightly discoloured gum, but with an excellent and well centred watermark. The plate number has been written at the bottom. The postmark is patchy and incomplete. It can be seen to be a two part oval barred numeral cancel, as used in London. Unfortunately the precise district (“N” or “S”) is missing so we can only say it was used in the West (“W”). The office number is also incomplete, with only the final digit - “3” - recognisable.
Two-part oval barred numeral cancel: ?.W / ?3
Large Crown (Standard)
